  1. I haven’t commented on this forum for a (what feels like) a long time now but it seems the issue of bread is very important to many here . On PA this morning from Roscoff - some strange long, thin rolls were offered at the breakfast buffet. No more triangles just as anticipated However, when walking past the commodore lounge galley kitchen I glimpsed a tray of what seemed to be triangular rolls. I stepped back for a closer look. Yes, triangle. And even though I didn’t have breakfast in the lounge, can confirm with others in our group who did that triangular rolls were 100% offered. I’m t
  2. By the looks of the ship guide (I know it isn't really a technical document), MSM can park vehicles on Decks 1 to 6. 2 and 4 are blocked off I believe. So assuming boarding takes place on Decks 3 and 5 (maybe 6 but not both), I would've thought there's an internal ramp to get between decks 5 and 6, and also 3 and 1. That's my logic but I could be wrong.
  3. I've found a couple of Bilbao-Plymouth crossings that can be booked but aren't being advertised on schedules (I think someone once described them as "easter egg crossings") on December 7 and March 15 when CF makes a couple of visits to Plymouth, meaning she's doing Ports-Bilbao-Plym-Sant. Think she's done Bilbao-Plymouth a couple of times before.
  4. Yes, agreed, I would've thought BF would prefer Brest over a Polish mini-break but either way I can't see that there'll be any 'major' changes in only 2 weeks
  5. I'd be surprised to see her off to Gdansk for such a short period of time, especially given the time needed to get there and back again. What's the shortest time we've seen a ship in Gdansk for??
  6. Hmmm, that's odd, it's worked for me, maybe it would work in a different browser e.g. chrome / firefox ???
  7. If you mean when making a booking, it should say the name of the ship on the right hand side after you've chosen the sailing you want.
  8. Many years ago when I locked myself in the toilet in the cabin and couldn't unlock it. Parents had to get ship's engineer to come and take off the door!! Can't remember the ship (perhaps either Quiberon or Val)
  9. There was another ships monthly a couple of years back with pages on cap finistere and King seaways I'll see if I can dig it out (but might be in storage at the moment as moving house)
  10. I like one suggestion: "seats like the ones on the Portsmouth-Caen ferry" ....!!
  11. WAS elegant and attractive, until that.......thing......was put on top of her about this time last year....😑😵
  12. Pretty much spot on Gareth. According to the statistics, in 2015, Portsmouth/Caen was 4th busiest route behind 2 from dover, and Holyhead-Dublin. Here are the numbers with passenger numbers from 2003... https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...0/spas0102.xls
  13. How long was tat's charter again? 2 years rings a bell (but might be a number I've picked from nowhere, in fact thinking about it now we've already reached 2 years haven't we?🙄🤔). I'm sure they must be thinking about getting a replacement for her sooner or later as well (probably not a new build though).
  14. With Gareth - wouldn't be too upset if normandie left the fleet first. That said if we had a new build to replace her it would definetly take a few years from now to plan / build / have sea trials and deliver, by which time I feel Bretagne will have gone
  15. I didn't know the sulphuric acid was being discharged into the sea? Seawater is slightly alkaline anyway therefore neutralising the acidity of the sulphuric acid. See here: http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/blog/post/47922/Scrubber-Technology-for-Our-Ships---How-Does-it-Work
